Escape from everyday routine. But not without the smaller and bigger things
that make our daily lives even more convenient and pleasant – or the
planned travel adventure. With our tips, you will soon have stowed away
everything that is important to you. Simply and securely.
A few grams.
Full force in the event of an impact.
Even in the event of an impact at 50 km/h,
unsecured objects shoot forward with about fifty times their weight.
This is how to pack safely.
Heavy things at the bottom.
Light things at the top.
Pack heavy things at the bottom and, where possible,
directly against the seat back. Light things go on top.
Keep the back free.
Don’t place objects over 25 kg on the rear seat
or behind people, but preferably in the foot well.
Make sure that no luggage is unsecured.
Seats as support.
Don’t fold the seats over. They are an important
support – best bolstered by diagonally buckled belts.
A grille for high stackers.
Use a robust luggage compartment
grille if you load above the height
of the rear seatback.
Make space for yourself.
Secure sports equipment like skis
or bikes on special roof carrier systems
or in a roof box.
Keep important things within reach.
High-visibility vests, first-aid box,
warning triangle and other important things
should always remain within reach.
More weight. Less control.
On the road with heavy luggage.
An overloaded car skids more easily and is more difficult to steer and brake.
